James was born and raised Washingtonian and has called Leavenworth home since 1993. He has worked in the ski industry for 30+ years and has worked with Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance for decades to get multi-use, year-round trails built in and around Ski Hill. He taught both of his boys to ski both Nordic and Alpine at Ski Hill. As a previous owner of a local bike shop here in Leavenworth, he learned what it means to be part of a community. James is committed to furthering the Club's growth and to witness it prosper for future generations.
Callie has been a part of the LWSC since 2013 - first as a Nordic Coach and then as the Youth Programs Director and now you can find her tucked away at the IRT, hiding behind her computer and doing any number of things for the Club. As soon as our Nordic trails are skiable you'll find her out there with a big smile on her face.
Don't be fooled by her job title. Like all the staff at our small nonprofit organization, Mandi does it all (with flair).
Brian has been keeping the Big Tow line orderly since 2018. Not to worry, he is an OEC Certified member of the National Ski Patrol so he can handle emergency situations, too.
We welcome Lucy Quade as our new lodge manager! She hails from New Orleans, but has been proud to call Leavenworth home since 2020. Be sure to stop into the lodge to grab a drink and say hello!
It's a bird. It's a plane? Nope, it's Kate! She helps bring the fun to our Ski Teams and Ski Lessons.
Kelly has been working in the ski industry for over 24 years in various roles and resorts across Washington and Montana. She even learned how to ski at the Ski Hill here in Leavenworth once upon a time!
Not from Wisconsin. Or is he?
Gnorman is the LWSC's family friendly Gnome. You can find him hanging out in the Lodge or hiding out on one of the numerous trails at Ski Hill. Find him? Take your picture with him! He has his very own Instagram Account.
Not technically a staff member, Trolgar is our volunteer mischief maker. He specializes in single mitten thievery, Nordic trail pine cone placement and obscuring the snowshoe trail signs from view.
